It's more of a headache, than doing a simple copy and paste.

Do as you please though - that's how I and many many others do it - as it's efficient and it works 100% of the time.

More programs?

You didn't read the whole article did you? This can be done directly through CMD.

Didn't bother when I saw screenshots of CMD - no.
I don't see what's so hard about copy and pasting - but hey - overcomplicate it thumb.gif

no problem running origin games from 2 folders as someone already said. just set the install location in origin settings. you can it anytime you want to install somewhere other than the last origin install location.

One thing I've always wondered, I always moved what I don't want on my SSD off and left a symbolic link where it was pointing to it's new location on a slower drive, seems fine. The other way around though, moving from a slower drive to a faster, the link is left on the slow drive, how much time is spent by the OS looking up what's on the slower drive to find the symbolic link to then be redirected to the fast one? Will it need to access the slow drive at all to discover the link?

Good idea using a UNIX approach for the problem +rep, but after reading some of the negative comments, regarding the use of symlinks because it involves the command line, I don't think M$ has much to worry about maintaining Desktop marketshare (which is why I think Win9's GUI will also use the screwed up tablet interface). I was hopeful Steam's cross platform (Windows/Mac/Linux) desktop approach would catch on with EA (not sure why they bothered with AMD's Mantle).

So, T'Dubed thanks for the work on win7 vs win8 using the new Nvidia drivers! That really helped getting me off the fence whether to use win8 vs win7 with my SSD install. +rep

Going to transfer (invalidate) my Win8 upgrade license and pawn it off to a family member running XP. Then go back to Win7 to save a few bucks avoiding the M$ XP money grab. After using it for 3 months I still have too much hate and loathing of Win8.1. If I'm lucky I can keep playing BF without wasting another $100 on M$ ever again.

BTW for those of you using Win8 upgrade media you can't use Samsung's data migration app. You can't even use microsoft's system image restore process either (from what I can tell having tried both). I'd have to go back to the original install media first to put Win8 on my new SSD mad.gif So, since T'Dubed demonstrated Win7 runs BF4 better, with the Nvidia beta drivers, I see no reason to keep running Win8.1 rolleyes.gif

When I moved BF4 to my SSD I literally copied and pasted it, then changed the download Folder in origin's Options then told origin to repair my BF4 install (it just checks that all the files are there) then changed the origin download Folder back to what it was orginally. It really was that easy.

What's all this about linking files and CMD? thinking.gif

Wasn't sure if I should post this in here or make a whole new thread but...

Anyone else ever have trouble getting BF4 to even launch on Windows 8.1? Installed fine apparently - just will not launch through Origin or by double-clicking either BF4 icon.
Works fine on Windows 7 and it's not an Origin/EA problem as I tried Crysis 3 (also through Origin) on Windows 8.1 and had no issues.

I've repaired and reinstalled both Origin and BF4 with no luck. Installed all DX/Windows/Redistribute files/updates. Uninstalled/removed (with DDU) and reinstalled GPU drivers. Turned off Overlay in Origin.

Anything i've missed?

Thanks guys.

Don't you have to Launch BF4 via Battlelog (ie. your browser+plugin)?

Maybe that's what I'm missing... Strangely enough I didn't have to do that in Windows 7 for it to launch though.
Will give it a try. Cheers.
